Archaia is back in a big way and this week have 3 series continuing from where they left off. Details, and pretty pictures, below.
ARTESIA: BESIEGED #3 (of 6)
(W/A) Mark Smylie
As I Lay Dying. Stabbed and poisoned, Artesia hovers on death’s door while ghosts and spirits debate when she will die and King Euwen presses his assault on the city of Abenton and the palisades of the Daradjan camp. After a long (involuntary) hiatus, the saga of Artesia returns.
ROBOTIKA: FOR A FEW RUBLES MORE DOUBLE-SIZE RELAUNCH ISSUE #1&2
(W) Alex Sheikman and David Moran (A) Alex Sheikman (Col) Joel Chua
Special double-size issue relaunching the new Robotika series, combining the previously published issue 1 with the all-new issue 2! When all you’re after is A Few Rubles More, nothing but trouble awaits. Hallucinogenic tadpoles, Black Legion mercenaries, Beppe the Gangster, the Queen, Digital Djhitis and the Three Yojimbos caught in the middle of two rival gangs and a drug deal gone very bad. Now, just when his fighting skills are needed the most, Niko is confronted with his equal and maybe his “even better” – the enigmatic Mister Saint Just! Plus, a Robotika back-up tale “Once Upon A Time…” by David Moran, Brian Churilla (Dark Horse Presents, The Engineer: Konstrukt) and Jeremy Shepherd (The Engineer: Konstrukt).
THE KILLER #9
(W) Matz (A) Luc Jacamon
A Deadly Soul, Part One. A professional. A man of few scruples, nerves of steel, and a steady trigger finger. A man whose crimes might be catching up with him. A man on the verge of cracking. Archaia presents THE KILLER, a hardboiled noir series chronicling one man’s journey through some seriously bad mojo. In this issue: The Killer’s never as deadly as when he is in danger. The survival instinct that guides him drags him through the darkest corners of his soul. Safety and revenge are irreconcilable, and the time has come to choose!
